Guest House with views of Monetery Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains and Vineyard
My husband and I have an active organic working vineyard on the property. We take care of all aspects of the vineyard and winery. I prefer to view the vineyard chores as a zen-like experience rather than labor pruning and maintaining the vines. We produce a wonderful estate bottled Pinot Noir wine. Our 4 children are grown and living away from home now. There are free range chickens living the good life in the vineyard and 2 sweet pygmy goats enjoy munching on our weeds! I am a gardener and spend most days taking care of the landscape.
Judy purchased this Cottage in 1984
Why Judy chose Aptos
This property is a unique Santa Cruz treasure. We designed and built the house for our family. We have all the privacy anyone could desire with fantastic views of the ocean and mountains yet only a few miles from Aptos Village. I think we have a vineyard because my husband wanted a tractor!
What makes this Cottage unique
You will enjoy a tranquil setting, gorgeous views, a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna with all the privacy you would want. A complimentary bottle of estate Pinot Noir for your stay in included.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Nice studio close to Aptos
My daughter and I were brought to the area for a visit to Monterey Bay Aquarium.
The studio is very clean and well kept plus it has extra niceties such as a washer and dryer. There is a great indoor pool to swim in! Judy is very friendly and made us feel at home.
Once we got up to your property, it was so delightful quiet and relaxing. We loved it!
All four of us enjoyed our stay very delightful quiet. Sensational! Can’t think of anything and how you could improve the place. Just wonderful! The watch that you mentioned that was on the porch we saw the same leather watch, and it wasn’t ours . So I guess just hang onto it Judy, take care of yourselves.
This place holds a special place in my heart. My husband & I got married at Pacific Oaks Vineyard Estates; so it was only a matter of time before we came back to celebrate an anniversary here.
Judy (as always) is so sweet & welcoming.
The guest house itself was charming with perfect views, overlooking the mountains & the ocean from afar.
The grounds are so beautiful.. and the pool house.. my goodness. So fun to swim in.
Looking forward already to our next trip back.
Best VRBO experience ever
The Guest House was so comfortable and afforded us amazing views of the property. The property was gorgeous. The pool house was amazing. Our hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Hands down, one of our best VRBO experiences ever.
A Very Peaceful Stay
My wife and I absolutely loved our stay here and if we decide to vacation in this part of California again we will definitely book here. Checking in and out was a breeze and Judy provided very prompt and courteous answers to the few questions we had. This place is truly on top of the world! The view is amazing! The guest house is very clean and cozy with a super comfortable bed. Everything about this place is just calming. Quiet and comfortable is the short description but there's so much more! We stayed in December and I can only imagine what it is like in the summer with the grape vines full of fruit and the flowers blooming. While we didn't spend a lot of time in the Aptos area, we did enjoy the Red Apple Cafe just down the hill twice for breakfast. They have a very substantial menu and the food was great.
Thank you to Judy for providing such a wonderful vacation rental!
Quiet vineyard escape
We were coming to the area for a driving experience at Mazda Raceway and found the perfect place to relax. Lots of wild animals ,a cute dog and a wonderful modern oasis in the small vineyard. Stayed for 4 Nights and felt comfortable. We used the pool and hot tub and the washer and dryer. Nice shower and comfy bed. Road in and out was one lane and a little hard at night. Judy was friendly and unobtrusive. Would recommend to anyone needing to stay in the area.
